England is of course well known for elegant large country houses and English country cottages. If your budget doesn’t extend to staying in a large manor house or mansion, you can nevertheless enjoy visiting one of the National Trust’s or English Heritage properties on a day out. There are many quaint country cottages in England to choose from ranging from cottages for two to budget family self catering accommodation. You may even find accommodation within a national park or within an area of outstanding natural beauty. There are many options including eco friendly properties and even houseboats.
